Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) has prostate cancer

A blow...

Officials tell The Associated Press that Democratic Sen. Christopher Dodd has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Dodd planned to announce the diagnosis at a news conference in Hartford, Conn., Friday afternoon.

Dodd, 65, is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. The five-term senator is up for re-election next year.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the senator's health.
